I have plans to head to buyck next weekend and staying through the snowmobile runs on crane the next weekend. Anyone know how wet it is on the lakes in the area? I will be fishing mainly the smaller lakes. Thx for any comments.

I was up the 12th and the slush had frozen at that time. They did get a little warm up last weekend but according to the Crane Lake Bar report it is looking good again. I will be heading up Fri for the weekend but expect it to be good. The following is Crane Lake Bar's report from their Facebook page.

 

Trail and Snow UPDATE 2/23 After the big melt last weekend we still have snow!!! In the last few days we have received over two inches of new snow and it's still snowing and is supposed to continue to through this evening. Last weekend the groomers were out so they got that wet snow groomed before it froze hard Way to go guys!.

Thanks a ton Neiko. I'm a 3rd generation hunting shack owner over by the gold mine road. If you spend much time in the area, I'm sure we've crossed paths at trails end. GREAT food and Danielle is the BEST!!! I kinda hope tom and dawn don't ever find a buyer. (Selfish on my part) thx again.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
